This is the 70th episode of Kamiya Hiroshi (神谷浩史) and Ono Daisuke’s (小野大輔) radio show Dear Girl ~Stories~.  

OnoD announces that his single “Manatsu no Spica” is finally released Wednesday that week when this episode was first broadcast. Then they announce that they will be releasing DGS merchandise that they themselves produced. They spend half the duration of this episode describing the type of merchandise available. The goods that they’re describing are pretty interesting and funny, especially the T-shirt designs. They also decide on the prices on the T-shirts that they “designed”. Afterwards, OnoD continues to promote his then new single “Manatsu no Spica.”
